More facts about NY state sales tax

Btw just read article clearing up some facts about the NY state sales tax post a few months back

“Amazon decided to comply, kept its New York affiliates, and collects sales tax in New York, depositing the money in an escrow account, but the issue is still in the court system.”

So basically they are closing down any state except NY where this has been implemented and are waiting for the NY case to resolve itself before handing over the fees collected.

Lol I hope they win….i’ll be getting a minor windfall back considering the amount of stuff I buy from Amazon over the last few years.

BTW interesting Amazon only had 25,000 affiliates in California, I would have thought the number was higher, easy decision to kill off affiliates with the size of the CA market.
